Éder kicked off his professional career in 2001 with Independência. This was followed by his stints at Americano RJ and Vasco da Gama, the latter in the country's top tier where his teammate was World Cup winner Romário. In September 2010, Éder signed for Portuguese Primeira Liga club Rio Ave but he could get international clearance two weeks later. In 2013, he was loaned to the Greek club Kerkyra.
After playing two seasons with the Cypriot club Nea Salamis between 2013 and 2015, Éder switched clubs and countries by signing for Indian Super League franchise Chennaiyin FC in August 2015, where he joined Elano and Bernard Mendy. Upon signing the contract, he said he would bring his "experience of playing in other leagues of Europe" and that he would also "learn a lot" by playing under Marco Materazzi. He made his debut for the franchise on 5 December, against FC Pune City, coming as a 77th-minute substitute for Manuele Blasi in a 1–0 victory. He made a further appearance in Chennaiyin's 3–0 triumph over Atletico de Kolkata replacing Jeje Lalpekhlua in the last minute of the match.
After the league was over, Éder signed for I-League club Salgaocar, becoming the fourth and final foreigner for the Malky Thomson-led side. Joining Chennaiyin teammates Karanjit Singh and Gilbert Oliveira at the new club, he said that they would help him to settle in his new club. He made his league debut against Aizawl FC where, along with Augustin Fernandes and Reagan Singh, he played as one of the back three.
