Li Jianbin started his football career by playing for the Qingdao Beilaite youth team and showed great athleticism that would attract the interests of second tier football club Shanghai Stars in 2006. He would not break into the senior team and would move to second tier football club Qingdao Hailifeng where he once again spent most of his time playing for their youth and reserve teams.
Li Jianbin would join Chengdu Blades in May 2007 and would soon join their youth team Sheffield United which was in the Hong Kong First Division League where he played five games and scored one goal. On his return from his loan period, Chengdu Blades had become a top tier team and Li would go on to make his debut for Chengdu Blades on 5 July 2009 in a league game against Shandong Luneng which ended in a 2–1 win. Then manager Wang Baoshan would show a lot of faith in the young player and allowed him to feature within nine more league games at the end of the season. The next season saw the club relegated to the second tier when it was discovered that the club match-fixed several games in 2007 when they were promoted. Li Jianbin would decide to remain faithful towards the club and decided to concentrate in establishing himself as a vital member within the team. He achieved this by playing in twenty-two league games and helped guide the club to second place within the league as well as immediate promotion back to the Chinese Super League.
Li transferred to Guangzhou Evergrande on 26 December 2011 along with Zhao Xuri, Rong Hao, and Peng Xinli. He made his debut for Guangzhou on 11 May 2012 in a 3-1 away defeat against Dalian Shide. Li failed to establish himself within the first team and played mostly in the reserve team league for the club. He made just one league appearance for Guangzhou in the 2012 league season.
On 20 November 2012, Li was loaned to Shanghai Shenhua for the 2013 league season as part of an agreement for Feng Renliang's transfer to Guangzhou Evergrande with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Li Jianbin would be called up to the Chinese under-23 national team to take part in the 2010 Asian Games where he would play in three games and score one goal in a tournament in which China were knocked out in the last sixteen. Several months later after an impressive league season where Li established himself and won promotion with Chengdu Blades, he would be a late call-up to the China national football team preliminary squad in preparation for the 2011 AFC Asian Cup. Despite having no previous senior international experience and having played for a second tier side, Li was unexpectedly included into the squad after teammate Feng Xiaoting was injured and would go on to make his international debut against Iraq on 2 January 2011 which China won 3-2.
