He debuted professionally for First Vienna in 2002.
Maierhofer was initially trained as a restaurant specialist/cook. The tall striker joined Bayern Munich's reserve team from Austrian side SV Langenrohr in July 2005, and signed a professional contract with the club one year later, eventually making two Bundesliga appearances as a late substitute, during 2006–07. In two seasons with Bayern Munich's reserve team, he scored 21 goals in 42 Regionalliga appearances and was the team's top goalscorer in both seasons.
In January 2007, Maierhofer moved to 2. Bundesliga side TuS Koblenz until the end of the season, scoring three goals in 14 league appearances. In July 2007, he signed a two-year contract with another team in the division, SpVgg Greuther Fürth, but the club sent him on a six-month loan to Austrian Bundesliga's Rapid Wien in January 2008.
Maierhofer's good performances during his initial loan spell at Rapid Wien secured him his first call-up to the Austrian national team in April 2008, when he was named to the country's preliminary squad for the UEFA Euro 2008 finals. However, he would not make the final cut.
On 20 August 2008, he eventually made his international debut, in a 2–2 friendly against Italy, in Nice. He scored his first international goal when he scored inside the first minute against the Faroe Islands on 5 September 2009.
He signed for newly promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers in a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee – reportedly an initial £1.8m – on 31 August 2009. He scored on his debut in a 3–1 defeat at Blackburn Rovers. He suffered a hernia injury which put him out of action for several months, and upon regaining fitness was no longer in contention at Wolves. He was instead sent on a one-month loan to Championship club Bristol City in March 2010, but failed to make an impact.
During summer 2010, he was told he was no longer part of Wolves manager Mick McCarthy's plans and was instead loaned to 2. Bundesliga club MSV Duisburg on a season-long loan for the 2010–11 campaign. He scored 12 goals during the season, including a goal in a DFB Cup semi final to take the Zebras to the final where they lost to Schalke.
On 23 August 2011, Maierhofer returned to Austria when he signed for Red Bull Salzburg in a two-year deal. After a year and a half in Salzburg, Maierhofer returned to Germany, signing for 1. FC Köln in January 2013, but left in the summer. On 14 March 2014, Maierhofer joined Championship side Millwall on a short-term deal until the end of the 2013–14 season.
On 19 November 2014, he signed a short-term deal with SC Wiener Neustadt of the Austrian Bundesliga for the rest of 2014. He was part of the starting XI against Wolfsberger AC three days later and scored the first goal in a 2–0 home win.
On 12 February 2016, he signed half-year contract with option to buy with FK AS Trenčín.
