Barmettler was part of the 2006–07 Swiss Championship winning team FC Zürich.
On 12 July 2012 Barmettler joined Inter Baku on a two-year contract. On 7 January 2013, he moved to FC Vaduz on a 6-month contract, with the option of another 2 years, on a free transfer.
On 2 August 2013 following a successful trial period in the summer with Real Valladolid, the club have opted to sign Barmettler on a two-year contract, making him the first Dominican player to play in La Liga. He made his debut in the competition on the 24th, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–2 away loss against Villarreal CF.
On 14 July 2014 Barmettler rescinded with the Pucelanos, after their relegation. On 4 March of the following year he returned to his homeland, being presented at Cibao FC.
On 14 November 2009, Barmettler had made his international debut for Switzerland in the 0–1 home loss to Norway, playing the full 90 minutes. However, as the match was friendly and in addition he was never called after that date, Barmettler chose to change his FIFA nationality into Dominican Republic in 2012.
His first match with the Dominican national team was in the 2012 Caribbean Championship. He debuted on 24 September of that year in a 2-2 draw against Aruba. He was the captain of the Dominican national team.
