Born in Santa Perpètua de Mogoda, Barcelona, Catalonia, Jordà finished his formation with CD Numancia then made his senior debuts with its B-team. He was subsequently loaned to Segunda División B club CM Peralta and, after appearing in three La Liga games with the former's main squad towards the end of the 2004–05 season, the first being on 6 February 2005 as he featured the full 90 minutes in a 0–1 away loss against Getafe CF, was again loaned out to another side in the third level, Benidorm CF.
Jordà scored his first competitive goal for Numancia on 3 June 2007, heading a 26th minute cross in a 3–1 home win over Polideportivo Ejido for the Segunda División championship. He contributed with six goals in 27 matches in the 2007–08 campaign, as the club from Soria returned to the top flight as champions.
In June 2008, news arose of Jordà signing for Alicante CF in division two and he eventually joined during that summer, switching to neighbouring Hércules CF at the end of the season, which ended in relegation. In late January 2010, after only three Copa del Rey appearances with the latter, he signed a two-year contract with Levante UD still in the second tier, netting in his debut two days later to help to a 2–1 league home defeat of Villarreal CF B; he repeated the feat in the following two rounds, at Cádiz CF (4–2 away win) and Celta de Vigo (1–0, home).
In March 2012, aged 28, Jordà moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining Chinese Super League side Guizhou Renhe F.C. and sharing teams with countrymen Nano and Rubén Suárez as the first two became the first Spaniards to play in the country. In the semi-finals of the Chinese FA Cup against Shandong Luneng Taishan FC, he scored once and provided an assist in an eventual qualification on the away goals rule.
After leaving in January 2014 as a free agent, Jordà represented in quick succession A.C. Siena, FC Dinamo Tbilisi and Wuhan Zall FC. On 4 August 2017, the 33-year-old signed for Indian Super League franchise Mumbai City FC from UE Llagostera.
