During six seasons, he amassed Série A totals of 133 games and 13 goals, representing five clubs. He also competed professionally in Serbia and Portugal.
Born in Blumenau, Santa Catarina (state), Evandro made his professional debut for Clube Atlético Paranaense against Clube Malutrom, in a 3–1 win for the Campeonato Paranaense on 10 February 2005. He scored his first goal on 1 June, helping to a 3–2 success over Santos FC in the Copa Libertadores.
During his five-year tenure at the Arena da Baixada, he was also loaned to Goiás Esporte Clube, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras and Clube Atlético Mineiro. On 25 May 2010, still owned by Atlético, he signed alongside teammate Renan Oliveira with Esporte Clube Vitória, in exchange for Neto Berola.
On 1 December 2010, Evandro joined Serbian club Red Star Belgrade on a three-and-a-half-year deal. In order to reduce the number of foreigners in the team, a Serbian passport was requested for him, and the following July the Serbian government approved the move and he officially became a national of the country.
On 16 May 2012, Evandro scored the opening goal in the final of the Serbian Cup, a 2–0 defeat of FK Borac Čačak. On 22 August, however, he terminated his contract right before the second leg of the UEFA Europa League's play-off round against FC Girondins de Bordeaux, saying to a journalist at Belgrade's airport: "I can't play for Red Star any more. I train, I play games, and there is no money. I can't do it any longer, I have to think about my family. I am not mad at anyone. I loved Belgrade and Serbia. I played the best I could, I don't think Red Star was a mistake."
On 27 January 2013, Evandro's successful strike during a 3–3 home draw to S.C. Olhanense received widespread media coverage. He finished his second season with a career-best 11 goals, as his team finished fourth and qualified to the Europa League.
