Born in Ondarroa, Biscay, Martínez joined Real Sociedad's youth ranks from local CD Aurrerá Ondarroa. He made his senior debuts in the 2009–10 season, helping the B-team promote from the fourth division after one year out by contributing with 23 games and one goal.
On 27 August 2011, Martínez made his first-team – and La Liga – debut with the Basques, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–1 away win against Sporting de Gijón. On 2 October he scored his first league goal, netting from inside his own half in an eventual 1–2 home loss against Athletic Bilbao, in a derby.
Martínez scored his third league goal in the same fashion, in a 3–2 win at Real Betis on 27 November (in the 90th minute). He continued to be an automatic first-choice in the following top flight campaigns, notably helping the club return to the UEFA Champions League after 21 years in 2012–13 by netting four times in 34 games.
On 26 April 2016, Martínez signed a new five-year deal with Real Sociedad.
Martínez made his debuts for the Spanish under-21 team in 2011. In the following year, he was picked by manager Luis Milla for his squad that appeared in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London: in the first game against Japan, he was sent off late into the first half for bringing down Kensuke Nagai thus denying a clear goalscoring opportunity, in an eventual 0–1 loss.
