Born in San Sebastian, Gipuzkoa, Ruiz de Galarreta joined Athletic Bilbao's youth system in 2003, aged 10. On 14 December 2011, while still a junior, he made his debut with the first team, coming on as a substitute for Borja Ekiza in the 88th minute of a 2–4 away loss against Paris Saint-Germain F.C. for the season's UEFA Europa League; during his first year, however, he was almost exclusively played with the reserves in Segunda Division B.
On 2 August 2012 Ruiz de Galarreta made his second appearance for the main squad, again in the Europa League but now against NK Slaven Belupo (27 minutes played, 3–1 home win). He played his first La Liga game on the 19th of the same month, replacing Gaizka Toquero at half-time of an eventual 3–5 home defeat to Real Betis.
During a match with the B-side against Lleida Esportiu on 21 October 2012, Ruiz de Galarreta ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament on his left knee, being sidelined for the remainder of the campaign. For 2013–14 he was loaned to CD Mirandes in Segunda Division where, during a home game against CD Numancia on 27 October, he suffered the same injury.
Still owned by Athletic Ruiz de Galarreta subsequently represented, in the following years, Real Zaragoza and CD Leganes.
Ruiz de Galarreta started representing Spain at under-17 level, appearing in friendlies against Portugal, Faroe Islands and Romania. He also played for the under-18s and the under-19s.
