Štilić began his 14-year professional career with hometown club FK Sloboda Tuzla, making his debuts with the first team in 1981. He also played one season for FK Rudar Prijedor and two for FK Novi Sad before making a move to FK Željezničar.
After four years with the Sarajevo-based team, Štilić moved abroad, where he remained until his retirement. He started with União da Madeira, appearing in only 17 games in one 1/2 top division seasons combined, then scoring 10 goals with Leça F.C. as the club promoted from the third level; he returned to that level in 1994, appearing for Sport Clube Dragões Sandinenses and retiring at the age of 35.
Štilić began working as a coach with former team Željezničar, first with the youth sides then as an assistant to Jiří Plíšek. In early November 2004, Plíšek was sacked and Štilić was appointed as his replacement, going on to act as caretaker for several matches, and eventually returning to the youth team.
On 29 October 2018 Štilić was once again named the assistant coach at Željezničar. From 27 November 2018 to 31 December 2018 Štilić and other Željezničar assistant coach Adin Mulaosmanović were both dual-caretaker managers of the club after Milomir Odović left that position. Both stayed on that position until the club found a new manager which was Amar Osim. He left Željezničar on 31 December 2018.
Štilić's son, Semir, is also a footballer and a midfielder. He too played for Željezničar. He also played in Lech Poznań for several seasons, as well as the Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team.
