Born in Ipiaú, Bahia, Vladimir graduated from Santos FC's youth system. On 18 September 2009, he was loaned to Fortaleza EC, but failed to make an appearance with the club (being only third-choice goalkeeper), and returned to his parent club two months later.
On 2 February 2011 Vladimir made his first team debut, replacing field player Anderson Carvalho in a 2–2 away draw against AA Ponte Preta. He was handed his first start three days later, in a 1–1 away draw against EC Santo André.
Mainly a backup to Rafael Cabral, Vladimir was further demoted after Aranha's arrival in 2012, being only selected on the bench in some occasions during that year. Rafael subsequently left in 2013, and he subsequently was a backup to Aranha.
In September 2014, profitting from Aranha's injury, Vladimir appeared more regularly until the return of the former, only suffering one goal in the process. On 14 January 2015 he signed a new deal with Peixe, until December.
In 2015, after new signing Vanderlei suffered an injury, Vladimir was a starter in that year's Campeonato Paulista winning campaign. He made a double recovery save in a 1–1 away draw against Corinthians on 5 April (it was also his first derby as a professional), and saved a penalty in the shoot-out in the final against Palmeiras on 3 May.
On 21 August 2015, after already returning to the bench, Vladimir renewed his contract until December 2016. On 26 September of the following year he further extended his link, signing until 2018.
In 2017, as Vanderlei suffered another injury, Vladimir again became a regular starter. Despite already winning the Copa Libertadores in 2011 as a third-choice, he made his debut in the competition on 9 March 2017 by starting in a 1–1 away draw against Sporting Cristal.
