Born in Funchal, Madeira, Zé Vítor started playing professionally with C.S. Marítimo in his hometown, but never appeared officially for the first team, also being loaned to a third division club. He was definitely released in 2003, signing with another neighbouring side, A.D. Machico in the fourth level.
In the summer of 2006, Vítor joined C.D. Nacional – still in Madeira – making his Primeira Liga debut on 27 August by coming from the bench in a 0–1 away loss against former team Marítimo. He went on to appear in a further 30 league games, leaving in the 2008 January transfer window to FC St. Gallen of Switzerland.
After suffering relegation in his first Swiss Super League season, Zé Vítor helped the club return to division one in the following year. He moved countries again in 2010, signing for AEL Limassol in Cyprus.
