Born in Rouveen, Konterman's career began with the local amateur club SC Rouveen, then went on to play for clubs in the Dutch Eredivisie including FC Zwolle, Cambuur, Willem II and Feyenoord, until he was snapped up by Dick Advocaat in 2000 to play for Rangers for a fee of £4.5m.
Konterman was part of a growing Dutch influence at Ibrox under Advocaat, but did not make a similarly impressive impact to the likes of Ronald de Boer and Arthur Numan. He endured a difficult start at Ibrox in defence; however, following the arrival of Alex McLeish, Konterman was often used in an advanced role in the heart of the midfield. In this position, he had a more successful spell at the club including netting a winning strike after extra time from 30 yards against arch rivals Celtic in a League Cup semi-final. After a 3-year spell with Rangers and winning 6 caps for the Dutch national team, Konterman returned home in the summer of 2003 signing for Vitesse Arnhem.
After retiring, Konterman began coaching at football camps. In 2009 he took up the position of technical director at Dutch club FC Zwolle in 2009. Konterman was going to be the head coach of the club's U15s and support the other coaches at the club.
On 3 September 2013, he was appointed assistant manager for Jong FC Twente. In addition to his work for Jong FC Twente, Konterman would also continue as an assistant coach for Netherlands' 19s. Konterman had several roles at Twente, including supporting the coaches of the U19s and the first team. From 2014 to 2017, he was the head coach of the U19s.
In June 2017, Konterman took charge of Netherlands U18 national team and was also going to be assistant manager of the U17s. In the following season, he was promoted to U20 national team manager. On 26 February 2020, he was also appointed caretaker manager of the U19s following Maarten Stekelenburg's promotion to the A-team.
