I don't know how to find a person/company to develop an app

I'm exploring an idea of an app for work that is beyond my ability to create, but also seems much simpler than the kinds of things companies build. How do I find a right-sized app developer?

I need something (I think) that would take an existing RSS or JSON feed from an existing events calendar and an existing news feed, rebundle the image/headline/date/time for each event with a link to the event listing on the site / link to the full story on the site, and create a simple app where when you open it it's just a scrolling, vaguely Instagrammish feed of event listings / news stories + push notifications for last-minute changes or things we really want to draw attention to.

I don't have any app-making powers or in-house capacity to build or maintain such at thing.

I'm not Scrooge McDucking my way across a vault of coins, but this is something that I would have a budget to create and set up.

Key concerns include:
- maintenance over time -- a service that keeps the app up to date and compatible and pushes updates to the Apple / Google stores
- no interest in overstuffed enterprise solutions -- we've already gone the route of a big-company "app that does everything" approach, and have found what we need is something that scales right down to an events/headlines list.

I'm not a developer and I'm not sure what the right words are or the right approach is to find "modest" app-building services. It's easy to find giant companies that want to sell me massive SAAS app platforms that I customize, but I kind of want the inverse of that.

Where can I look / what search terms should I use?
