Majorov began competing on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series in 2005. He made his senior international debut at the 2007 Golden Spin of Zagreb, placing 11th, but continued competing also on the junior level.

In the 2009–10 season, Majorov was eighth at the 2010 World Junior Championships and ended his season by winning the senior silver medal at the Triglav Trophy.

In 2010–11, Majorov won his first JGP medal, bronze, at the JGP in Ostrava. He also won two senior events, the Ice Challenge in Graz and the 2010 NRW Trophy. In March 2011, he won the bronze medal at the World Junior Championships. It was Sweden's first ISU Championships medal in 74 years. Majorov had back problems in 2011.

In the 2011–12 season, Majorov finished 11th at the 2012 European Championships and 26th at the 2012 World Championships.

In 2012–13, Majorov was 6th at the 2013 European Championships and 18th at the 2013 World Championships.

In the 2015–16 season, Majorov placed 8th at the 2015 CS Finlandia Trophy and won silver medals at two events – the International Cup of Nice and Volvo Open Cup. To prepare for his father's treatment, one bag of blood was drawn from the skater a week before the Volvo Open Cup and another a week before the 2015 Rostelecom Cup, from which he withdrew. He withdrew from the Swedish Championships to recover after an operation to extract bone marrow for his father. Majorov won gold at the Nordics Open in February 2016. His withdrawal from the 2016 World Championships in Boston followed the detection of a precursor to a stress fracture of the pelvis.
