“Well, I think you'd be a great fit for our team.”
You're hiring someone for a job in your department. You've interviewed someone who you would like to hire. You say this, offering him the job.
Well, I think you'd be a great fit for our team.

You use "well" to change the topic or the tone of a conversation:
A: How are your classes going?
B: Not too well, to be honest. Calculus is kicking my butt.
B: Yeah, I'll try. Hey, have you talked to Priscilla lately?
You can also use "well" to signal the end of a conversation. For example, you might say this after talking to someone who's just returned to work from maternity leave:
This phrase is often used when talking about open positions and job applicants. If you think that a person is "a great fit" for a job, it means that you think they can do the job well.
You might get a question like this in a job interview or on an application form:
Why would you be a good fit for this position?
If the company rejects you, they might write this in an e-mail to you:
Unfortunately, we don't feel that you'd be a good fit at this time.
You can also talk about it the other way: a job can be a "great fit" for a person:
I think this job would be a great fit for you.
I was a middle school teacher for a few years, but it wasn't really a good fit for me.
In business, people often call the group that they work with (their company or department) a "team". For example, if a company wants to hire people to work for them, they'll put a link on their website which says:
Join our team.
Small companies also advertise the people that work there in a section on their website titled "Our Team".
You can name other departments or groups in your company by one of their members:
What's Becky's team working on these days?
And if you want to praise the people who work for you, you can say this:
We've got a fantastic team here.
