One suggestion as a new company joiner, try to observe how things work, build a good relationship with the team and align with their approach as a first stage and eventually you will get their buy-in and collaboration on future projects, then it would become easier to contribute your insights and new ways.
Remember that you have to let the team organize itself. Your job is to coach the team to think differently so they can figure it out. It is not your job to tell them what to do or how to do it. If you try to do so, you can expect resistance.
