Moreno began his career at Club Blooming and then played for Colombia's Independiente Santa Fe before spending two seasons at the English club Middlesbrough. The rest of his career was spent at D.C. United apart from one season at the New York MetroStars in 2003, and he was the all-time leading scorer in Major League Soccer at the time of his retirement in 2010. On 22 August 2007, in a match against the New York Red Bulls, he scored his 109th MLS goal, surpassing the previous league record set by former Dallas Burn and Real Salt Lake forward Jason Kreis. On 17 April 2009, Moreno became the first MLS player ever to reach the mark of 100 goals and 100 assists when he assisted on a Ben Olsen stoppage time goal.
From 1991 to 2008, Moreno played 75 matches for the Bolivia national football team, scoring eight goals. He represented the nation in five Copa América tournaments and the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

Moreno began his career in his native Bolivia, attending the prestigious Tahuichi Academy and playing for Blooming from 1991 to 1994. He signed with the Colombian side Independiente Santa Fe in 1994, but only made 5 league appearances for the team.
Moreno made history in 1994 when he signed with Middlesbrough, and in doing so became the first Bolivian to play in the English Premiership. Moreno started in Middlesbrough's official opening of their new Riverside Stadium in a friendly against Italian side Sampdoria. He then went on to spend two years there, mostly coming off the bench. In total he made 20 league appearances for Boro, but only scored one league goal against Barnsley, also scoring another goal against A.C. Cesena in the Anglo-Italian Cup.
In 1996, in the middle of the Major League Soccer season, he was signed by the league and allocated to D.C. United, and helped lead them to the MLS Cup. He was arguably the league's best player in 1997, when he led the league in goals (16), was named to the MLS Best XI and won another MLS Cup for his side (he would add a third Cup and another Best XI in 1999). After the 1997 season, he spent a few games on loan back to Middlesbrough, scoring once against Stoke City.
1998 was Moreno's best season, as he scored 16 goals and added 11 assists, only losing the MLS MVP Award to teammate and fellow Bolivian Marco Etcheverry. He continued to play well amid constant concerns about his weight, but injuries began to take toll in 2001. He would go on to miss a large chunk of the 2002 season and a conflict with head coach Ray Hudson led to Moreno being traded to the MetroStars after that season.
Moreno missed most of his one season with the Metrostars, but did score two goals, one against United. He was shipped back to United before the 2004 season and, undertaking a strict training regimen to avoid injuries, regained much of his old form. He was a finalist for MLS MVP, was named to the league's Best XI for the second time, and led D.C. to their fourth MLS Cup. He was named to another Best XI in 2005. He was named to the MLS All-Time Best XI after the 2005 season. In 2007, he scored his 108th goal on a penalty kick against Toronto FC on 19 May, tying him with Jason Kreis as the all-time leading scorer in MLS. Moreno and Steve Ralston are the only players to have played in each of the first 15 MLS seasons. On 12 August 2010, Jaime Moreno and D.C. United announced that the 2010 season would be his last year with the club. His last game was at home against Toronto FC on 23 October 2010, where he scored on a penalty kick.
After the 2010 MLS season D.C. United declined Moreno's contract option and he elected to participate in the 2010 MLS Re-Entry Draft. When he was not selected, Moreno retired as a player and was hired as Youth Academy Technical Training Coach for D.C. United on 4 March 2011.
Moreno was a regular on the Bolivian national team for most of the 1990s and played in the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the 1997 Copa América, but had been ignored for six years until recalled in 2007 for a friendly with Ireland. He played in the 2007 Copa América, where he scored his eighth international goal in the 39th minute of Bolivia's opening game against the host nation of Venezuela. He also scored in the 24th minute against Peru, though it was not enough for Bolivia to advance from the group stage. Moreno announced his retirement from international football in October 2008, after 75 appearances and nine goals scored for his country. He played in 23 FIFA World Cup qualification matches and at the 1999 Confederations Cup.
D.C. United announced on 1 March 2011 that Moreno had been named the club's Youth Academy Technical Training Coach.
On 5 May 2011; six months after his retirement, Moreno was hired by his former club, D.C. United, to coach their U-23 side. The team represents the highest tier in United's Academy, and will begin playing in the Premier Development League, the fourth division in American soccer in 2012.
Post playing career
On September 14, 2013 Moreno was inducted into the D.C. United Hall of Tradition at halftime of a match against the Los Angeles Galaxy at RFK Stadium.
Moreno and his wife, Louise, reside in Loudoun County, Virginia, with their five children. Moreno's oldest son, James, 15, has been invited to train with Premier League club West Ham as of 20 October 2010.
