Joya, who grew up in the Bay Area of California, was played in the USSF Development Academy for De Anza Force. In early 2012, he joined Santos Laguna's organization. He began during the 2012 Clausura with the club's U-20 team. In September 2012, the midfielder made his first team debut in a Liga MX match.
Joya was loaned to Chicago Fire with an option to buy ahead of the 2014 MLS season. Joya made his MLS debut in 2014, as a 63rd-minute substitute, when his side were down 2-0. Seconds later after making his way onto the field, a deflected shot from Chivas USA keeper landed in front of him. He scored a left-footed shot inside the six yard box to add Fire onto the board making it 2-1. That was Joya's first MLS touch and only league goal of the season for him.
Joya is loaned to Club Necaxa of the Ascenso MX.
